"Only God knows the good that can come about by reading one good Catholic book." ~Saint John Bosco
Breastplate of Righteousness
Based on the Scriptural armor of God, Breastplate of Righteousness is book two in the Catholic children's fantasy-adventure chapter book Armor of God series.
This series was written with First Communicants in mind but it can be enjoyed by children of all ages. The stories for the entire six-book series are written, but they will be released a book at a time as the artwork is completed. The author is creating the old-style pen-and-ink artwork to illustrate these stories. The stories focus on the virtues related to the Scriptural armor mentioned in Ephesians. And each story contains catechism lessons from the fictional Brother Coll.
SAINT CLARE AND HER CAT
This beautifully illustrated children's book sells out at every Catholic conference. Apparently, many Catholic families have or know a child named Clare and think it would make a nice addition to their home library. But others are drawn to the Franciscan charism which is portrayed so well in this story.
This story is filled with actual historical events from the saint's life. And--I recently discovered--Saint Clare really did love cats! I invite you to search for Saint Clare and cats online and see the adorable pictures that come up in your search. Please also enjoy this book reading by the Franciscan Friars of Holy Name Province.
